Discover a rainbow

  1. Discover a rainbow

What do you know about rainbows?  What order are the colors from the inside out?  Does the sky look different inside the rainbow when compared to the outside?  What makes a rainbow appear?  Does your family know any songs or stories about rainbows?  Pick a rainy day when the sun peeks through the clouds and see if you can find a rainbow, if you are especially lucky, you may see a double rainbow!
